Luk Yu Tea House, Central, Hong Kong

Travel to Hong Kong, the most easily found culinary along the city is noodles. But in addition to noodles, we may also see the number of dim sum outlets ranging from small to exclusive restaurants. This time, I visited one of the dim sum restaurant that has been operating quite a while. Based on the information I got, Luk Yu Tea House is almost known to all Hong Kong people.

Along with his famous name, apparently here is also popular will the story. More precisely the tragic story of the murder that killed a businessman caused by the gun shooting. This story is a dark history of this restaurant but remains an attraction for both local and foreign tourists.
There are two floors with an old style, dimly lit yellow lights, classic interior look from chairs, tables to walls and other decorations. The restaurant staff are dominantly middle-aged and not fluent in English. Initially the menu offered is written all Mandarin. But after knowing that I'm a foreign tourist, he instantly gives a menu with English and complete with pictures.
On the first floor looks quite crowded by visitors. I happen to be sitting on the second floor that looks empty. The menu offered is a variety of classical dim sum which is actually a general menu can be found in dim sum restaurants everywhere.
One of them was Shrimp & Pork Dumplings. From appearance, it is definitely a shumai with shrimp and pork meat blended into one. A fairly standard size with three pieces on a plate. The delicious flavor of the dumplings and the dense texture tastes good. I certainly recommend this menu.
Then, there was a Steamed Lotus Rice, glutinous rice wrapped in leaves and then served with chicken pieces in it. It taste just fine for me, the texture of rice is thick, rough and dry. Included with the chicken meat was tasteless.
And the last menu was a Fried Shrimp Dumplings. Dim sum fries like spring rolls with shrimp and bamboo shoots in it. The flavor of dominant bamboo shoots covered the taste of the shrimp. Frankly I do not really like the bamboo shoots that have a strong aroma.
For information, the price offered here can be considered quite high. A serving of dim sum can cost around Rp 70,000 with the number about 3 pieces of dim sum per portion. The taste is practically okay but not amazing. Besides, the typical service less friendly can not be my reason to return to the restaurant.
But based on some recommendations from social media, Luk Yu Tea House is indeed has its own charm for local residents and even foreign tourists. With the concept of a tea house full of classical Chinese ornaments make it more interesting to visit, especially for the first time experience.
